, but to america as well. >> the obama administration has changed its story several times about what happened in libya. first they blamed it on a movie, but now top administration officials are saying without question terrorists killed these four americans. some republicans claim there's a cover-up and are demanding answers from the obama administration. joining us now brad wood house, communications director for the democratic national committee, who's joining us in our studios. welcome, great to you have here. >> thank you for having me. >> let's talk for a moment what's going on right now. why is the president continuing to refer to the video, to that clip of the movie as a source for the problems of what's going on with the unrest in the middle east, even though it's already been stated, in effect, this was indeed a terrorist attack against our consulate there in libya. >> let's be clear, the first day after the attack, the president talked about it as terror. but these assessments go on. there would be no reason to have an investigation if the initial assessment always proved to be corre
what happened in libya. wasting no time, obama administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the
today, and he made some key points. he moved a little bit in the obama administration direction making it clear there will be no israeli attacks before the election or even before our next inauguration. his logic points inescapably to an israeli attack. it is reinforcement of the skepticism that the obama administration was projecting toward his demands that the menendez demands, the obama administration response. that was a strange moment today. >> i think he made a very important point that the economic sanctions have not worked to slow down the neck their weapons program. not affecting the nuclear program which means that the next at by their is a rocket center somebody takes the military action. lou: is there some strange way of benefit to this public discussion of policy that would, one seriously your estimate seems, suggest they constrain their public comment, the secretive rather than discuss time lines, red lines, and moments for attack? >> he has now made his point. i think he would be best advised to stop further public discussion. we passed the real redlines years ago. lou:
with the israeli ambassador to the united states, michael orin. >> has the obama administration made clear enough for your government where the red line is? >> the obama administration said time and again they're determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. the red line is designed to show -- help persuade the united states where, how you can achieve that goal of preventing iran from acquiring military nuclear capabilities. >> you make aistinction between acquiring or having the capability of having a nuclear weapon? >> well, the capability from our perspective would probably set up a nuclear arms race in the middle east. it would greatly impair our ability to respond to terrorist attacks say from lebanon or gaza. if we defend ourselves, whether iran could break out and use a nuclear weapon and it could do so in a small room somewhere, put this bomb together. this is a country half the size of europe. there's a good chance you're not going to know where that room is. what we're saying is the one part of this nuclear program that we can see, because there's a warhead part, there's a
night who said this is a failure of the obama administration. do you see it as that, the way, what we're seeing in the arab spring, what we're seeing happen in libya? >> i think obviously because of the tragedy that we have to know whether measures could have been taken and there is already evidence coming -- forthcoming, including chris' diary that there were threats and you know, i think we need to investigate that aspect of it. but this is still a very dangerous part of the world. we still have these jihadists coming across their borders. if there's anything we can help them with, it's border security. and so all i can say is it's a great tragedy and i'm not so concerned about the fact there may have been intelligence failures as i am about not telling the american people the truth. >> senator mccain, thank you. >> thanks for having me back on. >>> you can see the whole interview with senator mccain shortly on ac360.com. let us know what you think. we're on facebook, follow us on twitter. >>> a short time ago, secretary of state hillary clinton sat down with israeli prime minister
unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and b

that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came out to the rose garden and told americans these were acts of terror and punished to punish the perpetrators and i have no doubt we will. it does take time t
not letting up the pressure now on the obama administration, as lawmakers have now sent a letter to james clapper demanding answers on benghazi attack. of considers, yesterday we were talking about james clapper. friday, his office coming out and basically staking responsibility for the intelligence failures. well, now, senator joe lieberman and others coming forward with this letter. >> alisyn: and also, who is going to take responsible for the tactffactactfufact-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be

that the obama administration knew within 24 hours that the murder of the u.s. ambassador and three others in libya was a terrorist attack. and they labeled it that way internally. why didn't they tell the american people? here for a fair and balanced debate is former communications advisor to harry reid and republican strategist michelle seleski, thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> alisyn: penny, start with you. how can the administration justify the misleading information they put out for the first two weeks about this benghazi attack? >> the information they put out there is based on the best intelligence they had at the time. often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carn

in public for days and weeks afterward, top members of the obama administration continued to tell a different story saying for days after it was a spontaneous protest that got out of hand. that attack killed four americans including our ambassador to libya, chris stevens and four days after they were told, intel knew there was a terrorist attack, this is what the administration sent our u.n. ambassador on the sunday shows to tell america. >> the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous, reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted of course by the video. what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi, as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. meg
't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in e past in trai of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administratio about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and mor. and that the part that's in facilities that areservle and are still lnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with in a dialogue t it. you mention tt the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. thidengt willalking netanyahu tomorrow. th p of an ongoing dialogue that we've had to reach an understanding about

are making is that for political reasons the obama administration downplayed this notion of this being an act of terror, pre-planned, any association with al qaeda. they were just wanting to show it's not happening on the president's watch. and they couldn't be blamed for this, if you will, the shotty if you will security that was at that consulate in benghazi. >> wolf, it may take some weeks now to get to the bottom of that. and whether or not that was -- it was dick kated by politics the initial response. we see today senator john kerry, aemocrat the senate asking the right questions. these are questions that others memberenof thee and house are also sking. so ihi you ought to expect we will see extensive hearings and investigation on this>> now the week that f agents who have bnt tselibya to investigate, they still have not beenble to get to the scene of thisro actionn bengzi. they're basically holed hundreds of miles away in tripoli, the capital. you have new information? >> that's right, wolf. so you've got a handful -- u've got some fbi agents in tripoli waiting todeploo benghazi. yove
